Small Form Factor Power Amp - Suggestions?

So I'm looking to upgrade my office rig.

Currently I'm running a Marantz CD-1 and the matching AMP-1, which I love. And a pair of Acoustic Technologies single driver floor standing speakers, with a SVS PB12 Plus sub. I am really happy with this setup, but:

I recently upgraded my DAC (NS Intenso), and tube pre-amp (EAR 834L) downstairs in the basement rig. I would like to use these upstairs in the office, both are small form factor, and they are just too nice to just sit on the shelf! :smile:

Any suggestions for a small form factor amp? Even monoblocks would work.

Found this thread on Audio Karma, for reference. Any insight on those suggestions would be helpful. As always, my fellow Polkies! :smile:

Yep, for @DSkip, Dayens Ampino monoblocks are mentioned! :smile:

https://audiokarma.org/forums/index.php?threads/awesome-small-form-factor-amps.707145/

To start, when I was getting my read on about McCormack, I found this little heater:

And a pair of Muscial Fidelity Monoblocks! These look crazy!

    PS Audio Sprout?

    It is attractive and quite small. It has a sub out and seems to allow you to use a separate preamp with the "Analog In, Analog Out" options on the back.

    Also the Nelson Pass Amp Camp Amp comes to mind.

    The Amp Camp Amp comes as either a 2 channel or monoblock.

    Thanks brother! The PASS looks cool! I looked at the Sprout, but I'm really looking for just a power amp, as I got the EAR pre! :smile:

    In re: the Pass Amp Camp Amp (ACA):

    The ACA is quite nice, but also low power, and also Class A (i.e., generates quite a bit of heat). It may be recalled that our own @ALL212 built -- umm -- some of these. One of them, out of the kindness and karmic generosity of an unnamed Polk forums member, has been on an extended visit at my house :)

    The one here is the original morph of the ACA, @ ca. 6 wpc, but was built as a stereo amp with active cooling and Bottlehead-style form factor.

    I was curious about these amps because the philosophy and the performance are somewhat akin to a SE 2A3 amplifier. I can say that a 2A3 amp does better the ACA in terms of real, flesh-and-blood liquidity in the midrange, but the ACA is absolutely in the fight (i.e., not embarrassed in a head-to-head comparison with a decent-quality 2A3 amp) and is a fraction of the cost (probably ca. a third, comparing kit/DIY to kit/DIY). Bass performance of the ACA might even be a tad better.

    EDIT: hmm -- one of those Bee-nanner plugs isn't exactly fully seated on the left channel output of that amplifier, now, is it? :#

    Maybe the famous/infamous Carver Cube would be a good choice for you, @Verb? :)

    Mono blocks, you say? Small form factor?
    These generate zero heat and are stackable . . .

    From AA
    “The EVS 500M is our super high powered ICEpower® mono block amps. These amps use ®ICEpowers most powerful and best module (the 1000ASP) that puts out over 550 watts into 8 ohms and over 1100 watts into 4 ohms. These amps will redefine value in high powered amps. The mono block chassis are 8 inches wide, 12 inches deep and 3 inches tall. They use the same feet, input jacks and binding post bypass system as described above. A pair of them can easily sit next to each other on a shelf. The amps weigh 7.5lbs. each”

    My advice would be to stay away from cheap class-D and the Carver mentioned - no offense intended.

    The Ampino or Pass Labs would both be great options - the Pass if you can run low power and the Ampinos if you are looking for more real world power.

    I'd like to add that ears I trust tell me the original Sprout is mediocre at best, but the new version has taken some major steps forward. It sounds like they figured some things out.

    In case it wasn't obvious, the Carver "suggestion" was a joke (as evidenced by the little smiley in the post) -- those little cubes were famous (even more so than the legendary Flame Linear 700B) for self-immolation.

    What's the sensitivity of those speakers verb? I can't seem to find it online but being a small FR driver I imagine it's high.

    So, I am continually amazed and delighted about the generosity of our CP members!

    Kerry decided to part with his PASS ACA monoblocks! And I must say, for an absurdly great deal!

    Shout out to Kerry for his generosity!

    Looks like they'll be a good match for my speakers! I'm gonna give em a go, looking forward to it!

    One caveat, if I ever decide to part with em (fat chance :smile: ) Kerry will buy em back to ensure they stay in the CP family! No worries sir! They shall!

    Thanks again Kerry! :smile:

    Attaboy, Kerry!
    "Electronic music is human sound adapting to indulge technology, and for some, it feels like the signature sound of energy. New and abstract sounds over hypnotic rhythms can conjure vast soundscapes for escape, pleasure, and transcendence."

    Glad I made a suggestion that someone took. I don't have experience with those amps but have heard nothing but good things and they seemed to fit your criteria.
